Update: Shop is busy. Never been so busy in my career. Even with the expansion and and having a full time sub on hand we still can’t keep up. But that said I’m frustrated as all hell that another year of life is approaching and I didn’t hit more of the goals! I’m already onto 2018, shop procedures and processes are coming out Jan 2nd. We are elevating our workmanship, expanding our services, expanding our service areas, getting ready to launch a new website, moving my current website to a new platform, bringing in other restorers who want to further their skills while working with me. Life is short so things are changing. More goals will be met for number 36 is coming right around the weekend.

Look at this killer period cabinet. No idea what it was used for but I’m thinking office desk or? But I had to have it!
Today’s onsite evaluation for one the best of Boston handymen service, carpentry, and tile businesses I know @rjtcarpentryandtile. ~ ~ The overall scope of these doors are beautiful with solid bones. Lets hope we can save it and bring back to it’s full potential. #Boston where #History was made and where we as #Makers #Restorers #Remodelers are here to keep the #craftsmanship of the past alive.
This is my expression when another person asks, “don’t you get bored taking things apart and constantly finishing?” Honestly, no. The reason being that everything made will need to be repaired. It doesn’t matter how much time or work an artist puts in making a piece, something will fail. If it’s not the joinery than it certainly will be the finish. There is more to the field of woodworking than blonde shellac, paint, poly, and wiping oils. There is more to woodworking than dovetails and dominos. It takes a trained or passionate Restorer to understand how an item is built and the finish used so that it can be restored. I love the challenges. I love the history. I love saving an item from the land fill. Everything has been already made but not everything has been saved. That’s where we Restorers come in.
Tools of the trade! How Starrett makes my job easier!
Well I think this is it.The commode might be ready to head to the shop that got the job request. Servicing all of New England. More than 40 Shops use the furniture repair shop to restore their work. How awesome is that. Blessed.
